    Someone gave me a bag of doggy kibble for my 3 weenie dogs, but I raw feed my dogs and give them vegitables and such, basically they dont, and now refuse to eat kibble. I remember hearing somewhere that rats can have kibble but I havent had any luck finding much information. I was thinking of...

    I ordered a bulk tub of rat food from Amazon because my boys didn't seem to like the last food I bought them, but it arrived in a cracked container and with bugs that I can't identify. I don't know exactly what to do next. I blew the last of my allowance on this tub of food so I can't afford a...

    My rat Harry has been biting the crap outta me. The last month i have been taking him out he has bitten me atleast once. I was just making sushi dinner and my hands reeked of salmon and he bit me so badly i was bleeding everywhere. I had to get it bandaged. Then even after my hand was clean he...

    Hi there! so ever since i got my rats I’ve tried many times to do the shunamite diet, but it’s honestly never worked out for me & my rats too much, they always pick out the stuff they wanna eat, which is usually typical in rats but the would completely ignore the kibble. I use the oxbow...

    Hello, my favourite fruit is rambutan, and my rats are always so jealous when they see me eating it. Usually when I eat fresh fruit I give them a little bite, but because I haven’t been able to find any information about whether or not they can have rambutan I haven’t ever given them any. But...

    Hello friends, My newest baby rat doesn't take to dried beef liver bits like my other pups. Besides boiled egg and Oxbow young rat/mouse lab block, what are some other ways I could make-up for the protein? I currently use meat baby food but I am also a little unclear about the amount, and or...

    My rats never eat any brand of 'rat kibble' I buy them---and I don't feel it's very nutritional anyway---so I give them a bowl of random stuff every day instead: cooked pasta, low sugar cereals, some veg, etc. I want to vary it a bit because they get bored easily and I don't want them to stop...

    I am still waiting for my bag of oxbow and i just ran out of my regular food. The power of five is really crappy and crumbles to nothing. So while i was out today i found this bag cheap as i didn't want to just get another bag of oxbow. Its expensive. The ingredients look ok and i mix it up with...

    I am going to be awaiting my new bag of oxbow food. But i don't know how long it will take. What kinds of things should i feed the boys in the meantime? The old bag of food is pretty crappy. Its called the power of five rat food. It is ok, but the pellets crumble to dust and they don't like...

    I'm wondering if papaya seeds are healthy, or even tolerable, for rats in small amounts. I know papaya is similar to melon which makes me hopeful but I don't want to put my rats at risk. Quick responses are preferable! :) I'm asking because papaya seeds are shown to drastically reduce tapeworms...

    So um- lol, yeah, one of my rats is getting a bit fat ;-; I just want to know a few tricks or something to help him not get TOO fat 🤣 I googled it, and he's definitely a on the chunky side. I use the the oxbow, young rat food for them because they like it, should I transfer them to the adult...

    Ok so I'm not quite sure what to feed my rats. At first I had them on the Adult Oxbow rat food, but there poop didn't look healthy at ALL(diarrhea like and nasty). So then I switched them to the Oxbow Young Rat And Mouse Food and their poop turned back to the normal healthy rat poop. Since they...

    So I know that Gerber puffs are a popular rat treat, but in February there was a report about baby food (and Gerber's rice flour, which is in the puffs) containing lead, arsenic, and mercury? Is it still safe to feed them to ratties? Am I overreacting? I don't have rats yet, but I'm getting them...
